Foreign Employment and Welfare Minister Dilan Perera says the foreign employment agencies would be graded next year.
Perera has said the agencies will be graded into star classes based on their merits in providing services.
The move is expected to help foreign employment seekers to select a job agency based on its performance.
Speaking during the ceremony to open the Migration Resource Centre (MRC) of Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE), Perera has said the SLBFE would also be modernized and computerized before the end of next year.
The MRC is expected to act as an e-ombudsman to facilitate and pacify migrant workers as well as their relatives and all others who are directly or indirectly connected with foreign employment.
